      Hi.

      It's pretty standard to bet 3 streets, but please explain why you chose to bet so small. I would have sized all my bets large and kept on firing.

      I thought to draw out oop against a fish I would just set my own odds on the turn, rather than check and maybe face a pot sized bet and have to fold.

      I don't think he is folding much more that beats me if i bet bigger on the turn than the size I use, so why not just set my own odds to draw?

      Maybe if I try this line though, I should x/r the river?

      Hi.

      Setting a cheap price for yourself on the Turn makes sense if
      -Villain is extremely passive and will hardly raise the Turn
      -We know we have no fold equity on the Turn

      In this instance, we have so much equity on the hand and I disagree that we have no fold equity. We can definitely fold out some 6X, maybe 9X and other straight draws. We don't need too much fold equity for our play to be profitable. Remember that we hit our draw 25% of the time on the River and if the pot is bigger when we hit, that would be great for us.

      As played I don't like the river overbet unless you think villain is a huge calling station and will call down any top pair.

      Thanks.
